New Year and New Creative Challenges!

It's a new year, and with new years come new challenges!! This month I've decided to participate again in the super fun Facebook group "Inspiration to Paint!" Every day they give you a theme to paint. Paintings have to be done the day-of, no painting ahead.

January 1st's theme was to paint something inspired by the late, great Jocelyn Casdorph! Such a tragic loss for our face painting community. She is as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside, so I painted a little portrait!


Today's theme was to choose a word for your "intent" for 2019; not necessarily a resolution. The word I chose is "Growth!" This year I hope to grow in my skills, business, relationships, faith, and creativity!


And in keeping with the growth theme, besides this month of participation in ITP, I have decided to start a personal exploration in patterns. Here are my first two paintings...houndstooth and paisley! Stay tuned for more pattern inspired designs in the coming weeks and months!

Houndstooth...boy, did this one make my brain hurt!!

fun with Paisley!
Happy new year, and happy painting!
